I haven’t felt right as a girl since I was 3…. But at the age of 11 I didn’t feel like I was permanently any gender and I felt like something was wrong with me. When I was 16 I started doing some research and talking to others. I finally found out you can be gender queer and gender fluid. Since that moment I didn’t feel wrong. I felt like a massive hole was filled. I already had a wardrobe full of guys clothing and I pretty much always dressed like a male so I knew my mum wouldn’t have a problem. At first she didn’t understand because it was a term we had bother never really came across, but by the end she said she would accept me as her CHILD (that would took me by surprise because she didn’t refer to a gender). So I started telling people, most people had an idea though. My little sister (15) told me that she has thought I was since we were both little. I changed my gender pronouns on facebook and I told people on my main social networking sites. I had a few weird remarks and some hate, but seriously, once I explained what it meant, almost everyone understood and some people who sent hate said sorry and explained they just didn’t understand at first.
So I cut my hair short a month ago, I get people saying I look much happier and handsome (we I Identify as male) and when I Identify as female, I get people calling me pretty and cute. That made me so happy because it meant I could physically express effectively how I felt on the inside. You know what, since I accepted it, I haven’t regretted telling people and being how I am. I have never been happier and felt more like myself. My friends have even pointed out that they have never seen me so happy and smile as much. My family have noticed a difference with me with how much happier I am. Basically I’m just trying to say, You should never be afraid to be yourself. Because honestly, hiding who you are and pretending to be someone you are not, really does take affect. You can never really be truly happy until you can be yourself. So screw what other people think and do whatever makes you happy <3
